Race For Hope was founded in 2004 when Carleen Taylor made a promise to her friend Peggy that she would help her raise awareness that colorectal cancer occurs in those under 50 years old. Peggy passed away at 45 years old only three weeks before the first race.
Tragically, after 12 years of warning others about this cancer in the under-50 population, Carleen’s 22-year-old son Connor was diagnosed in February 2016. He passed away at the age of 23 in September 2016. He was misdiagnosed due to his age. as are so many other young adults.
The mission is To Raise Awareness about colorectal cancer.
- To educate on the signs and symptoms of this cancer, especially in the under-50 population
- To remember lives lost to this cancer
- To bring hope to those in treatment for this cancer
- To take action against colorectal cancer
Join us as we take action against colorectal cancer, sign up today for the Race For Hope Derriere Dash
